Description

Climb the Roux corner to the point where you could traverse Left into Helter Skelter. Instead, climb the crack heading up and right to reach the large ledge about 15 Ft. Right of the finish of Lichen or Leave It. Pretty solid moves for 5.7. A good escape if Helter Skelter is too much for you.

Location

Just to the right of Helter Skelter and Lichen or Leave It.

Protection

A few hand size pieces.

Not really worth it unless you've already done most of the other climbs at the North Peak, East Face.

Agree with Andy that there are a few moves that get your attention with verticality. Mar 27, 2016

Good pro and solid moves, but much more sustained than expected. Sandbagged at 5.7, definitely as hard as Lichen or Leave It. Take finger size cams and nuts...maybe one hand size (#2 or 3 Camalot). Top out by going straight up to a small pine. The majority of the route is on nice, clean rock but the top is a little licheny and the small pine is in your face. May 5, 2014
